  • Happy Birthday Tunnel!

    on March 8 | in General, Travel Planning & Tips | by | with Comments Off on Happy Birthday Tunnel!

    Today marks the 40th anniversary of the dedication and opening of the westbound bore or the Eisenhower Tunnel at the Eisenhower/Johnson Memorial Tunnel west of Denver, which is the highest vehicle tunnel in the world at 11,155 feet. We thought it appropriate to give a shout-out to the Tunnel that has served as a lifeline to our sporting opportunities here in Colorado, and the role it played in helping develop our business and increased visitation.

    This blog comes to Colorado Ski Country from Mike Goodwin, Senior Editor of Snowboard Colorado.

    Last week I rallied down to Aspen with staff photographer Aaron Dodds for the first park shoot of Volume 4 of Snowboard Colorado Magazine. We met up with a young crew of dudes – Red Gerard, Blake Axelson, Ezra Racine and Wylie Adams – and lucked out with a bluebird day.

  • Daddy Day Care in Colorado Ski Country USA

    on March 3 | in Deals, General, Safety, Skiing & Snowboarding | by | with Comments Off on Daddy Day Care in Colorado Ski Country USA

    Skiing with kids can be tough.

    As a recovering ski instructor who seemed to always get stuck instructing about thirteen four-year-olds, I can tell you that skiing with kids can make the days stretch on forever, and not in a good way. And skiing with adults ain’t easy for the kids either, especially when they’re learning. Dad wants to rip turns, grom wants to chill on the magic carpet. So what do you do?

  • What Does Watching Ski Racing Do For You?

    on February 27 | in General | by | with Comments Off on What Does Watching Ski Racing Do For You?

    This blog comes to us from Veronica Whitney, Editor of El Montañes, the Hispanic newspaper of Western Colorado.

    There’s nothing like watching a little bit of ski racing to get me in the mood again to take to Aspen my dust covered Volkl GS Racetigers out of the garage. I’ve been following the Alpine World Ski Championships in Schladming, Austria, for the past two weeks and with every race I watched I got excited again about skiing the “real” skis.

    Conditions were perfect for my GS skis. Long, packed powder trails abound at Snowmass

  • Family skiing at Monarch is as easy as watching butterflies

    on February 24 | in General, Safety | by | with Comments Off on Family skiing at Monarch is as easy as watching butterflies

    photo 3 (4)
    We ski at Monarch at least once a season. It’s perfect for family ski getaways, and I’m not just saying that I swear. We love skiing at Monarch because it’s affordable, easy to get to, easy to get around the mountain, they have a nice variety of terrain, good infrastructure, it’s easy to get around the town, and their mascot is the butterfly, and how can you not like butterflies?
